The Girl Death Left Behind by Lurlene McDaniel

I love all of McDaniel's books. This one was great. It is about a girl named Beth who is getting tired of her family. A car accident kills every member of her family. Now she finds herself lost, confused, and sad. Eventually she moves in with her aunt and her family. At the end she is better able to cope with the accident. The author uses a wonderful writing style. You feel drawn in to the character and relate to her feelings. It makes you thankful for your family! Ellen D.

If you love Lurlene McDaniel, you _must_ read A Time for Dancing by Davida Wills Hurwin. (Keep the tissues handy.)
